Aggrey Memorial assistant coach Andy Kwaku Obeng believes the school has the credentials to dominate the Sprite Ball Championship in the girls’ division.
The Cape Coast based side were simply out of this world after they beat St Mary’s 25-19 in an epic finals at the Aviation Social Centre early this month.
Aggrey, inspired by the experienced trio – Matilda Gordon, Barbara and Ajata Iddrisu powered their way to victory in front of a record crowd in the capital.
After a couple of disappointing displays over the past three years, Aggrey came out gun blazing with a matured performance that saw them clinch the ultimate.
Gordon, voted MVP of the championship, has blossomed into one of Aggrey’s top players, and one of the finest at the senior high level.
The final year student showed against top-ranked St Mary’s she can do a long more in pouring 22 points, corralling six rebounds and swatting two shots.
The team’s assistant coach Andy Obeng has lauded the achievement of the team and reckons they could equal the record set by Mfantsipim.
“I think we have a solid team and believe they can maintain the momentum and make it work in the coming days,”
“Some of the players are in their final year, meaning they would not be available next year.
“But there are up and coming stars whom I believe will do well and hold the flag extremely high.
